–Drake Rehfeld on building a company with fellow USC students Jackson Berry, Alexander Pareto, and Zachary Denham
In 2015, an ambitious computer science student named Drake Rehfeld joined Lavalab, USC’s premier startup incubator. He was just a freshman at the time, but within two years, he would become the incubator’s managing director. Then, in his senior year, Rehfeld took things up another notch. He founded the e-commerce company Demeanor.co, which received 120K in seed money from Y Combinator. Now just 22 years old, Rehfeld is busy as Demeanor.co’s product manager, providing social media influencers with a suite of services to launch products that support their brand’s vision.
